Sushi is popular among diners of all ages. That is why sushi is featured heavily on the pan Asian fusion menu here at Penthouse808! If you are planning a visit to our rooftop restaurant, prepare yourself for the dining experience by learning how to properly eat sushi. Keep these tips in mind when enjoying a sushi meal:
Prepare Your Soy Sauce
Sushi restaurants typically offer diners small dishes to hold soy sauce during their meal. The fish and other types of seafood featured in sushi are complemented by soy sauce, but they can also be overpowered by this condiment! You should only dip the seafood into soy sauce, as rice absorbs the sauce and overpowers the flavors of the sushi.
Know When to Use Wasabi
Diners can add an extra kick of bold flavor to their sushi with wasabi. That is why this green-colored paste is often served alongside sushi orders. Some sushi orders already feature wasabi, making it important to learn when to use the extra wasabi provided. Add wasabi to your fish if it does not already feature this spicy ingredient.
Eat Each Piece in One Bite
Unlike other types of food that offer multiple bites, sushi is cut into pieces that can be eaten in just one bite. Some pieces may be larger than others, but all pieces should be eaten in just one bite. It is considered impolite to take a bite out of a piece of sushi and then put the rest back on the plate.
Use Chopsticks Correctly
If you like to use chopsticks, it is important to know how to use them and how not to use them. Chopsticks should only be used to pick up pieces of sushi and bring them to the mouth. Avoid rubbing chopsticks together or using them to stab or separate sushi pieces.

You can get a better of idea of how sushi is made by watching this informative video.

After I booked the hotel I read the reviews and was disheartened to see that a lot were negative. Once I got there I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The staff were incredibly helpful, pointing out exactly how I could get to Manhattan, giving me maps for subways and Manhattan itself, and they have a large wall map and tourist...
